Cornelio Campos , Visual Artist creates this “Guitar with Michoacan Designs”, for the Dia de Muertos offering of Revista Latina.
The Day of the Dead offering is a Mexican tradition that originates long before the arrival of the Spanish. But, it is because of them that he adapted to Christianity. The classic altar of the dead is divided into levels and has certain elements that help the deceased. There are different types of altars and each of them has a different number of levels that represent different things. There are offerings of 3 levels (Heaven, Earth and purgatory) and up to 7 levels (the 7 steps through which the soul passes to reach eternal rest). On November 2, the Day of the Dead is celebrated and it is on this date that we visit our deceased in the pantheons and put offerings in their honor.
The altar must be decorated according to the tastes of the deceased. You can place objects that belonged to him or elements that represent him. In some towns in Mexico, altars are made based on the deceased’s profession or favorite pastime.
